Abstract (en)

A method and system for performing user-defined code conversions in a computer system. A utility accepts a text file from a user program. This text file contains a series of conditional rules that define a protocol for converting character data between codesets. The utility parses this file and converts it to a binary table format that is then stored in a code conversion table database. The user program then invokes functions contained in the operating system to convert data in accordance with the stored binary table. <IMAGE>
